Internships and Practicum
Students enrolled in the Sport and Exercise Science or Sport and Exercise Management degree are required to undertake work integrated learning subjects in their final year of study. Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science students majoring in Exercise Science or Exercise Therapy will enrol in 92554 Exercise Assessment, Prescription and Delivery (Autumn) and 92550 Sport and Exercise Science Practicum (Spring) of their final year.
Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science students with no specified major and students in the Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Management degree will enrol in 92551 Sport and Exercise Internship in Spring of their second year (as a fifth subject) or Autumn of their final year of study. Undertaking 92551 Sport and Exercise Internship in the second year of study presents opportunities aligned with Spring and Summer months and may alleviate time pressures related to post graduate study application deadlines and graduation. If you are considering Global Exchange (available in Year 3 Autumn), 92551 Sport and Exercise Internship can be deferred to Spring of your final year and substituted with an elective. Please note that you cannot undertake Internship overseas, so this must be either completed in Spring Year 2 or Spring Year 3. Due to external accreditation requirements with ESSA, students undertaking the Exercise Science or Exercise Therapy major are ineligible for Global Exchange.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there classes for Practicum/ Internship subjects?
92550 Sport and Exercise Science Practicum and 92551 Sport and Exercise Internship have compulsory workshops in week one of each session.
Students who are enrolled and don't attend the compulsory workshops should withdraw from the subject before the Census date and re-enrol in a subsequent semester.
When can I start my Internship/ Practicum?
An internship / practicum can only commence once the student has completed the initial assessment and has had the placement formally approved in 92551 Sport and Exercise Internship or 92550 Sport and Exercise Science Practicum.
UTS cannot facilitate nor endorse any work integrated learning experiences and insurance policies will not cover time spent on site prior to receiving formal approval from the Subject Coordinator. Students will not be granted any exemption as this is an insurance and legal policy that is enforced University wide.
All Course, major and subject information can be found in the UTS handbook.
